N.O

ORIGANUM According to the RHS Index of Garden Plants, nearly every species we list is hardy to Zone 8 or 9. What a crock, who comes up with this stuff, winter in the mountains of Turkey at 2,000m doesn't sound like palm trees to me. The scary thing is most beginning gardeners and even some of the experienced ones actually take them seriously. (Want a chuckle; check out their Allium zone ratings;

Orostachys malecophyllus

Everyone wants to grow what they can't have, and in cold, wet Michigan, I'm always trying to grow stuff that would really be happier in Southern California. This guy, with fairly large rosettes of fleshy, pale green leaves, actually is happy here, and gives a wonderfully tropical desert look. Great to contrast with more typical northern garden fare, and of course exceptionally drought and heat tolerant as well. An inch or two tall, spreads indefinitely Joseph.....Zones 5

Orostachys spinosa ex Halda

Orostachys spinosa ex Halda

Marvelous plant, these are from wild seed and we now have hundreds of different genotypes, previous cultivated material seemed to be clonal from a single introduction that seldom flowered, these do. They show a bit of variation and should produce some viable seed for a change. They roll up in a tight ball for the winter swelling and unfurling in the spring to a multi-armed starfish with next year's over-wintering ball in the center; the ultimate Hen and Chick.____ZONE 4

Oxalis crassipes 'Rosea'

It sits on the bench next to crassipes 'Alba' and the two seem to have merged in my mind, except of course the flowers on this are pink, maybe the leaves are different too. I really don't care; this one is supposed to like the shade but it is sitting in dead full sun flowering like mad, I'll trade a flat of it for a few plants of Oxalis laciniata or O. bryoides.____ZONE 5
